SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS: Construction at the Wheaton YRE is expected to be completed later this year.  However, the Start/Finish is open for business!  Don't let a little construction dust deter you from enjoying this outstanding walk (voted one of the top 10 in the U.S.).

Our Next Scheduled Event: December 31st and January 1st, Columbia, Maryland

  • Join us as we walk on the network of paved paths in Columbia, Maryland.  This is as much a social event as a walking event.  Every year we welcome old friends, new friends, and multi-generation families to our warm, cozy hub at the Owen Brown Community Center.  From there you can walk our 5K, 6K or 10K trails, then return for warm food and drinks, and fellowship unique to volkswalkers.
